Sex discrimination occurs when an employee is treated differently and less favorably because of his or her sex. Both men and women are protected from sex discrimination. Employers may not discriminate in decisions regarding hiring, firing, job position or duties, training, opportunities advancement, work schedule or shift, job location, and your pay rate or salary. Pregnancy discrimination is also a form of sex discrimination.
Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, it is illegal to discriminate on the basis of sex in a way that negatively affects your terms and conditions of employment. Additionally, it is illegal to retaliate against an employee for reporting sex discrimination or pursuing legal action related to sex discrimination.
